Strategy[]

Heavy Turrets are an essential part of the Lord General's arsenal, allowing him to defend any area of the battlefield. There is a delay in the time between the turret is deployed and when it actually lands so timing a Heavy Turret drop is essential. Heavy Turrets can be used in an offensive role as well, pushing enemies further back from a needed territory point. Heavy Turrets are vulnerable to melee infantry, and should be protected from such threats. The Executionar upgrade allows the Heavy Turret to deal effective damage to any target; more importantly it gives the turret an effective area of effect anti-infantry weapon. Heavy Turrets can and should be repaired to prolong its useful life.
